Building construction — See Ch. 86.
Authorization by Board. No person shall move a building or other structure upon or across any street of the village unless a permit therefor has been issued by the Village Clerk upon authorization by the Board of Trustees.
Application form. As a prerequisite to securing a permit, an application must be filed with the Village Clerk containing:
Insurance. Each application shall be accompanied by a certificate of insurance, in form approved by the Village Counsel and issued by an insurance company authorized to do business in this state, running to the village and guaranteeing that the applicant has provided public liability coverage of not less than $100,000/$300,000 and property damage insurance in the amount of not less than $50,000/$100,000 to save the village harmless from all claims, actions and proceedings brought by any person for injury to person or property resulting from or occasioned by any fault or default by the person to whom the permit is issued or anyone acting thereunder on his behalf. The policy shall also protect the village, in the sum of $2,000, against any damages caused to any street or other public property by reason of such house moving.
Completion bond. In addition, every applicant shall post a ninety-day completion bond assuring the reerection, modification, alteration or other work to be done upon the building in conformity with the plans approved by the Superintendent of Buildings.
[Amended 2-26-1990 by L.L. No. 11-1990]
The Board of Trustees by resolution shall adopt and from time to time may amend a schedule of fees payable by an applicant for a permit to move a building or other structure upon or across any street of the village.
If, to the Board, the moving of the structure seems likely to cause injury to property, trees, electric wires or otherwise cause hardship or inconvenience or seem to be not conducive to public safety or welfare, such permit may be refused, the deposited fees returned and the bonds canceled.
